2020 Proton X70 CKD, here’s why the Geely Boyue Pro is not for Malaysia

The newly launched 2020 Proton X70 CKD garnered a lot of attention due to its enhanced features and most importantly lower price tag. However, some netizens were harping on the fact that the improved 2020 X70 CKD is not the Geely Boyue Pro. Well for starters, to introduce a new design on a model that’s only been on the market for a little over a year does not make business sense in the automotive industry. The X70 is still fresh to the market and is not due for a model revamp just yet. However,

Next-gen Proton Arena? Geely Boyue Pro-based pick-up truck spied!

Geely could be introducing a Boyue Pro-based pick-up truck soon, as we recently came across photos of what appears to be their upcoming truck. According to overseas media outlets, the new pick-up truck could be called “Yuancheng FX”, which loosely translates to “Long Distance FX”. If it looks funny to you, don’t be surprised, as it appears that Geely has tacked on a truck bed to the rear of the Boyue, transforming the SUV into a legitimate pick-up truck. Unlike traditional pick-up trucks that ar

2020 Proton X70 CKD – What new features will it get from the Geely Boyue?

The Geely Boyue has been on sale in China since 2016, and received a mid-life update in 2018. It received yet another update for 2020, which is the model you see here.

Then there’s the Boyue Pro, a more sophisticated version of the regular Boyue. The Boyue Pro is differentiated by new headlights and tail lights, m

No.1 in Malaysia, how's sales of the Geely Boyue/Proton X70 in China in 2020?

SUVs are all the rage these days and car manufacturers are more than happy to comply, as larger cars like SUVs offer more profit margins than a subcompact hatchback or sedan.

For context, our Malaysian Total Industry Volume (TIV) in the whole of 2020 was 529,434 vehicles. Covid-19 notwithstanding, buyers in Chi

The Geely Azkarra is a Proton X70 you can’t have – 48V mild hybrid, e-AWD

Following the debut of the Geely Coolray (Proton X50 to us) in the Philippines, the Hangzhou-based company has teased its next model, the Azkarra. The model is visually identical to the China market Geely Boyue Pro, but what sets it apart from the Boyue Pro is what lies under the skin. Unlike the current Boyue Pro, the Azkarra can be had with a 48V Electric Motor Synergy (EMS) system, making it a mild hybrid. Thanks to the mild hybrid system, the Azkarra also boasts an e-AWD drivetrain – the pet

The Geely Haoyue is set to be the company's flagship 3-row SUV when it is launched in China, but could this serve as a flagship model for Proton as well? Dimensions - Just how big is the Haoyue again? Starting with dimensions, Geely cheekily mentioned that the Haoyue is a XXXL-sized (大大大空间) SUV. Not surprising, as it is 4,835 mm long, 1,900 mm wide, and 1,780 mm tall. The Haoyue's wheelbase is 2,815 mm. In fact, the Haoyue is even larger in size than the Hyundai Santa Fe!

2021 Proton V70: We pit the Geely Jiaji-based MPV against the Exora!

If you're looking for a 7-seater family MPV, you could do much better than the aging Proton Exora. Really, in the 11 years that it's been on sale, things never really changed much - it's always had passé looks, dated features and a thirsty, tired powertrain. Possibly the only good thing about the Exora is how about much space you get for the price - 7-seats starting at RM 59,800? Where else can you find that? But that's about it, and Proton desperately needs a new MPV to be competitive in this s
